Papers must be 300-500 words, double-spaced, and consist of 3 parts:

PART I (SUMMARY): (worth 44%, 11 points; 150-250 words) This section highlights the main points of the lecture and discussion on ONE of the chapters from the Unit. Try to answer the following question: What are the most fundamental points/ideas being discussed?” Try to have no more than 3-4 key points, no fewer than 2. Do not include many small details. It’s okay to use a few statistics, but the purpose here is to succinctly summarize the primary arguments put forth in our lectures and discussions. Write this section as though the reader has NOT attended class or done the readings. Refer appropriately to at least ONE AUTHOR BY NAME FROM ASSIGNED READINGS with page numbers. The grader is looking at your presentation of the key points of the discussions and how well you review the material. Be sure to make each key point a complete sentence; otherwise, it wont make sense to the grader and youll lose points!

PART II (PERSONAL REACTION): (worth 32%, 8 points; 90-150 words) This section involves a critical reaction and evaluation of Part I. React to and thoughtfully evaluate one or two basic ideas that you highlighted in Part I. Take a stance. Which of the arguments make more sense? Are they logical? Agree, disagree, REACT! REFLECT! Please use I statements and include relevant personal examples, as this should be your personal reflection. Here the grader is looking for how reflective, thoughtful, questioning, & critical your response is. Does it appear that the student really understood and reacted to the material? Always tell HOW you feel about a certain issue and WHY you feel that way (provide a rationale/justification).

PART III (PERSONAL APPLICATION): (worth 12%, 3 points; 60-100 words) What was the one, MOST important, helpful, and/or interesting to you about these particular lectures/discussions? Why was this so? Cite the ideas/facts/data/event that meant the most to you and state why, connecting the material to your everyday life. Ask yourself questions such as: Has this new information changed me? How? Has it changed any of my actions/behaviors/thoughts in the present? Will this new information alter my thinking/actions in the future? How? Here the grader is looking at how well you connect with one aspect of our discussion/lecture.
